Synopsis
Various organizations from enterprises, universities to hotels to offices to homes, the IoT is transforming the fabric of business and personal life. This causes organizations seeking to deploy IoT solutions a complex, fragmented ecosystem of standards, devices and services. To encourage adoption, many enterprise IoT solution vendors have developed infrastructure silos that address a single use case but don’t readily integrate with other silos, and don’t make use of existing infrastructure investments.

While IDC cites 77% of enterprises had BUDGETs allocated for an IoT project in 2017 vs 33% in 2016. How does one go about optimizing this investment and ensure budgets allocated are sufficient and reduce complexity?

An IoT access network connects both Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi IoT endpoints over a converged, multi-standards physical network. Such a network unifies and reuses the same device onboarding, security and management infrastructure of an existing wired and wireless network to reduce costs thus enabling organizations to more quickly realize benefits from IoT endpoints and services.

Let us explore these uses across some verticals and understand how a converged network could be beneficial for all.

Guest Motivational Speaker – Celebrity Guest Motivational Speaker
Location: ROSELLE SIMPOR BALLROOM, LEVEL 4
Synopsis
“There is a point where we shift, as humans, from an age where we think anything is possible, to where we internally and externally start to limit ourselves. It’s like we put on a handbrake and start creating barriers for ourselves. Limitations are created from an internal dialogue that takes place in our brain, that tells us as humans what we think we are capable and incapable of.”

22 years of age, fit and healthy, living a dream of becoming a professional athlete, life was good, for our guest speaker, but life can change in a heartbeat. After a tragic accident, self-belief propelled him to achieve, and achieving nurtured confidence. That confidence challenged him to take control of his internal dialog and forge an extraordinary path to his ultimate goal.
